Tymbal Tapes:

"'At the house party on Saturday night Miss Cole boasted of catching rabbits. A trek ensued and she and Mister Carter, still in formal attire, set off spending three nights in the Wawayanda.'

From this late-nineteenth-century newspaper society column comes Three Nights in the Wawayanda, the final release in a triptych of Hourloupe records exploring time, reality, and the natural world. TNW isn't a narrative of hapless, hungover merrymakers wandering a 19th-century wilderness but a reflection on nature at the historical moment it is being given over to the forces that lead us to our current situation: industry and violence.

Like its predecessors, TNW tells its story through doublings and mirroring. Mister Carter and Miss Cole cross-dress as each other. A parallel couple — a man of charcoal and a man of chalk — appear, and an unnamed pair makes their escape at the end to a mysterious “other state.” A luminous entry from Henry David Thoreau's diary ("The Dance of No History") describes the daylight and moonlight in a beautiful, strange equilibrium. Male merges with female, female male; one carbonized being meets his chalk-dusted opposite.

Threading through the compositions are boxing tortoises ("Tortoise Boxing"), a postcard that grows to envelop the woods ("Postcard Found in the Woods"), a crew sailing the ship of a forest lost to a flood ("Green Navy/Rain"), and a frozen lake that becomes an outdoor club ("The Dancefloor/Beat Crush"). t, a lone pearl, a piece of flint — seem to guide everyone's action, even God's."
